Yeah, you're tellin' me lol. I spent the better part of the day 
tracking this one down, and the error file and line numbers 
display it as having occured at the callsite rather than the 
actual problem areas.

Though, admittedly I'm kind of used to seeing this error message 
since it appears any time you try and do something that relies on 
type info in betterC, intentionally or not. A notable example is 
forgetting to supply an arrange length when declaring a stack 
array, or it'll try to create a runtime-allocated array.

I'll open a report for this shortly if it is a bug if there isn't 
one already. For now, that template is an adequate workaround.
